Kansas Legislative Session All But Wrapped Up


State Representative Don Hineman from Dighton recapped legislative progress on a number of fronts during the current legislative session.  Hineman said he was very pleased with the passage of the Kansas Farm Bureau health plan, and additional funding for schools.  He was less pleased with a proposal to expand Medicaid in the state, but said another proposal is in the works.  He called it an extremely important issue, especially for rural hospitals in the state.
